Managing biodiversity and ecosystem services in oil and gas: Mainstreaming the mitigation hierarchy

November 2018

Managing biodiversity and ecosystem services: Mainstreaming the mitigation hierarchy outlines the key messages on good practice for biodiversity and ecosystem services from the oil and gas industry. 

What you need to know:

  • IPIECA and IOGP members take an environmental risk-based approach to managing biodiversity and ecosystem services.
  • The mitigation hierarchy (avoid, minimise, restore, offset) offers the oil and gas industry and governments a framework for good practice management.
  • The oil and gas industry can play a role to support governments and civil society in achieving global and local conservation goals.

The document explores the different roles of industry and governments, and how they can support and work with each other to mainstream biodiversity.
